Air Force and Navy are locked up in exactly the kind of match-up you would expect these two service academies to be involved in. Heavy on the run with a good dose of defense. The result at the half is a 10-7 lead for the visiting Air Force Falcons.
The teams have combined for 89 passing yards between Air force’s Karson Roberts and Navy’s Keenan Reynolds. The teams have rushing attempts by 13 different players for a combined 233 rushing yards at the half. The game itself has been pretty clean so far as well, with just one penalty assessed to Air Force for five yards and zero turnovers.
The winner of this game will get the inside track on the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy, awarded to the winner of the three-way competition between Air Force, Navy and Army. The winner of the Air Force-Navy game has won the trophy each of the past 16 years. Air Force hosts Army on November 2 and Navy will face Army in the annual Army-Navy Game in Philadelphia on December 14.
